Danniella Westbrook has opened up about her traumatic experience with a stalker.
The Celebrity Big Brother star appeared on The Jeremy Vine show and revealed that an obsessed troll has been harassing her for two years, since she left the Channel 5 show.
Explaining the horrific extent of the ordeal, she said: "Since 2016 when I walked out the Big Brother house I’ve had one person that’s trolled me, that sometimes I block 40 accounts a day. From one person."
Former EastEnders actress Danniella said that the stalking didn’t just take place online, as the same woman had also visited her house and even obtained her children’s home addresses.

"You have to remember these people have mental health issues. They’re very very sick.
"Sometimes it gets to the point where they’re coming to your house, giving out your children’s home addresses and telephone numbers and stuff like that, and nothing is still being done about it.
"They have been to my house, taken pictures through the window of my house and everything. The police have installed me with panic alarms and stuff like that…"
Danniella compared her struggle to that of Katie Price and Harvey, insisting that you have to allow people to continue until they go too far, an then law can intervene.

"I know who she is, the police know who she is, everybody knows who she is and its all getting dealt with," she added.
This isn’t the only struggle for the actress at the moment, as she is also currently battling womb cancer.
Exclusively opening up about the diagnosis back in September, she told the Sunday Mirror she was ashamed to have initially turned to cocaine to cope with the devastating news – but insisted she is now determined to fight.
